Old age doesn't suck.

It's a sure sign that you're not dead.

Re: “Song of the Day: Billy Sedlmayr Weighs in on Old FM Staple 'Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo' and Johnny and Edgar Winter

'Johnny Winter And Live' version of "Johnny B Goode" is still the best version (that I've heard)...other than Chuck Berry, of course.

Re: “Your Indispensable Back-To-College Guide

Here's how the items on the list would've read when I was a freshman at the UA from 76 to 81. The following items would read pretty much the same: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, 13, 15, and 16. The following items would read differently: 8. Goodwill and the Salvation Army were pretty much your only choices, 11. We'd still go to the Loft but it was on 6th Street and Fremont (now a parking garage), 14. Student Union, 2nd floor, east end had big chairs and sofas and of course the top floor of the Main Library, 17. We'd go to the Student Health Center at Cherry and University (now the Sonett Space Sciences Bldg.) because it was free, 18. No one cared about your mental health. And items that weren't a thing back then-2, 7, 9, and 10.

Re: “Hasty Tasting

Question: purchases at Fry's may include e-coupons or member discounts when done in person. Would using a delivery service have these discounts [or, for that matter Senior Discounts the 1st Wednesday of the month] or would it be full price for all items?

Re: “Tucson Salvage

To tell the truth, old age sucks. I have a T-shirt that says it all. " I may be old but I got to see all the cool bands"

Probably hanging out at the crib CW, and I literally mean the crib.

I was an infant 48 years ago.

It's good you're not paying the interns:
"some peperoni and mozzarella cheese"
"$400 dollars"

Re: “The Skinny

Most of the Republicans are ball-less, refusing to say the name TRUMP in their repudiations. Chicken $h!t$.

Re: “Editor's Note

Durham's hit pieces against Chew are a turn-off. No one in our central neighborhood has his campaign signs up. (They're only stuck on street corners with the others'.)
He's desperate.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

An EXCELLENT example of "Identity Politics" group think, dividing Americans and pitting then against each other on the basis of race or ethnicity.

Can YOU recognize the INHERENT RACISM of such ideology? I can!

Can you reconcile this ideology with Dr. King's admonition to judge each other "on the content of our character and not on the color of our skin?: I can't!

Re: “The Skinny

Good column. On the mark on all points. That radio guy Harris has never asked Miller a tough question; he gives her a free commercial every time she's on his moronic show.

Re: “The Skinny

The saddest part is that despite how its been demonstrated that this kind of intolerance hurts people, that alone wont drive people away from it. White nationalists will continue to think we are only a "white country" and we will be doomed to have another james fields or dylann roof commit a racist attack.

Re: “Danehy

"but all welfare cheats and meth heads are liberals."

If you grew up in a rural small poor conservative town with a drug problem such as i did, youd know you couldnt be more wrong.

Re: “Song of the Day: Billy Sedlmayr Weighs in on Old FM Staple 'Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo' and Johnny and Edgar Winter

My two musical regrets: Both Johnny and Dan Hicks played shows at the Rialto. Never saw either play live and wanted to but life intruded and missed both shows. Several months later they each (respectively) passed. Rats! (Still have my "Johnny Winter And" LP!)
